There's so much information in this book that sometimes it's a bit overwhelming, but hang in there, it's totally worth it to read the entire book. I've gone back to the book several times to refresh my memory and cement the info into my brain. I'm committed to moving more for the rest of my life. The best part is that making some easy, simple changes will really improve my prospects for the future.
Our government and academic institutions spend billion and billions on complicated drug and psychological studies and investigations to improve physical and mental health.Politicians drone on on about reducing health care costs .Here is one simple way with cellphone countdown timer or computer timer and understanding the principles that people can feel better on there own .
The NASA PhD, who wrote this book, deserves a government award for innovation and backing to get her simple idea across.She already has the evidence base from her research with NASA and anyone can try her tips for 3 days and feel the difference.No need for the Harvard double blind study .
This is one of those simple health care innovations like using a hand sanitizers to prevent the flu that can have an impact, a big impact, simply by understanding the principle ..
Almost anyone afford it and do it to feel better quickly and with little effort.

In a nutshell she believes, after working on astronaut physical rehab for NASA, that regular movement is the key to longevity and fitness. After doing an experiment with stand up desks for a few months I'm inclined to agree. Either standing or sitting for long periods I've found I get problems with either joints, posture or weight gain.
Since reading this I now implement a move-every-20-minutes regime (I work at my desk four days a week), usually yoga, calisthenics or weights. I'm happier, trimmer and more flexible. She may well be on to something.
My only criticism is that it felt a bit long and could have done with a bit of trimming as it begins to feel repetitive quite quickly. Worth a download though.
